From the article:-
"Such artistic liberties have caused an uproar in Stephenville, prompting the university to close the performance to the public and add extra police security to the theater.
Due to safety concerns, the university is limiting attendance to the show to students and members of their families, Benedict said, and the play has been rescheduled to begin at 8 a.m. Saturday."
Interesting that it is felt wise to protect the interested parties from the all loving attentions of the more fundamental of the sheeple.
